Any word on whether they're releasing WUC or WUP either in the Petal Pop print or with a Petal Pop Print band?

I did try the Centered Energy Bra and liked it, but I only want the black. I don't even want it that much.

Everything else is such an easy pass for me.

Even though they are track pants, those grey/black and black/green versions just do not look good. Certainly lack an element of stylishness that LLL has been known for (although that is not always true lately).

The two hoodies that are in WMTM were 58 yesterday and they even put them back up to 89

Do you think there will be an energy bra in the petal pop print?

Of course they put them back up to $89, that's what a flash sale is...

i would have loved those new pants in first pix but i don't like the wy stretch swift looks and hangs, its too wilty or something- same w/ the speed shorts wish they would make a 2-way stretch swift pant!!!! obviously you can't wear them tight! anyway those designers are too retarded to figure it out i know they never will they used to before the recycled 4 way material ever came on to the scene and they were fantastic can't remember the style name but they were a gathered bottom and the fit/function was beyond also they really did repell the rain! stretchy swift soaks up water and hangs yuk!!!!

Wow. Those track pants are fug. I ordered a $50 off scuba at like 1am Saturday. Got the order confirmation email, but no shipping email. It's been well over 24 hours now. Anyone else have this happen?

I think those new yoga crops look strange.

I hope there are some new crb's coming soon. My store literally has black, black and white stripe, the minty color and petal pop. That is all.
I was after the coral stripe today and they were all marked down and gone. So bummed.
Still full price on the website for now.

This is OT, but I am curious everyone else's thoughts. Between lulu's FB page and heylululemon, there have been several complaints about having bought a Scuba at full price recently and then not being given a price adjustment on the day of the sale, or some variation of that. I am of the opinion that a one-day sale is a one-day sale, and you need to be willing to pay the price that you are paying for something at the time, risking that it could get marked down in the future. Sales happen, as is the case with ANY store. I just feel kind of bad for lululemon - they try to do something nice and they get a bunch of backlash for it.

I've bought stuff at full price that soon went to mark-down, and I'm just kind of like, oh well, you win some, you lose some.

I'm just interested in others' opinions - do you agree, or do you think it's another lulu customer service issue?

I'm with you anon 1:42

@1:42 I agree. It was a flash sale. one.day. And it was one item. only scubas. I can see wanting a price adjustment if you bought something and it went to Loot. Where it is going to stay permanently marked down. This was a cool concept for Lulu and I hope they do it again soon. Honestly, I'm still surprised they did this...but like I've read on the FB groups, this seems like such a better way to clear out inventory than a warehouse sale. Look at how excited we all were about it. Do I need another scuba? No. For $50 off, am I going to buy another one? of course I am. I had zero plans to buy another scuba, anytime soon. Well played, Lulu, well played.

I can see both sides but yeah i've bought things that go on sale a few times and i don't get bent i just know that is going to happen sometimes i've never tried to get an adjustment; i bought 3 pairs of split set pants a couple years ago and then they went to wmtm o well i still love my pants and wear those almost exclusively still today! but i can also understand being mad too???? tough one for sure

I agree with Anon 1:42 - it's a One Day Sale. However, in keeping with the return policy of 14 days, if you could pick up the hoodie on sale and return the one you purchased at regular price within the time frame, I don't see an issue with that. Or return and repurchase the item at the sale price. I find Lulu does make this as difficult for customers as possible, as they don't do "price adjustments".

Anonymous said...

Anon 1:42pm I agree with you! If they wanna do price adjustments or not, it's THEIR business and their decision should be respected. Now the attitudes of some people as customers stems from today's society's sense of entitlement. If you were willing to pay for it at full price, that is YOUR free will!!! Hello! No one put a gun to your head and made you buy it at that price. You did that yourself. It's like people always try to get a handout. Don't blame the company for your choices, if they wanna do adjustments it's great but it's NOT their obligation. That's what a flash sale is about. The past is the past. Maybe you guys who are always whining and complaining can build a time machine to go back in time and not make the purchase :)

@1:42 I, personally, think it's a part of a much bigger problem. Most of these complaints have come from ladies who spend big $$ every month on Lulu and I think one of the reasons everyone feels so jipped is because overall lulu treats their customers horribly. These ladies are thinking, hey, I am one of your most loyal customers and the $ I would save I would just turn around and spend with your company. When they are given the often rude responses to their requests they see it as just one more way lulu mistreats them and doesn't appreciate their business. I doubt it would such a big deal if these customers were happy with lulu in all other respects. If lulu were known for excellent service and their loyal customers felt valued, they'd probably just let this issue roll off their backs.

I agree with anon 1:42. I don't think it is a popular opinion but when I buy something from Lululemon (or anywhere) I buy it because it is a price I am willing to pay for an item at that time.

Laura Morford said...

Anon 1:42, we may be in the minority here but I agree with you. If I buy something and it goes on sale later so be it. Had I waited they may not have had my size, the color I wanted etc. I have also been on the opposite side of that and found something on sale that just happened to be my size/color. My thoughts are in the long run it all works out. Sure this won't be the popular stance but just my opinion. :)

@ 1:42 pm
Totally agree with you on this. Especially when the event is a "one day only flash sale", other retailers will have similar stipulation in regards to the "no price adjustment for the special event". The only way to circumvent this is if you manage to purchase the same Scuba as the one you have bought previously, but still within the "extended holiday return period". Then you can return the reviously purchased Scuba. Of course there will be those who will do that even if they have already worn the Scuba from previous purchase by returning the new arrival with all tags intact. Technically legit, but ethically....
Just don't rocks at me for mentioning it! ;)

Anon 1:42, I totally agree with you. We like to say that people complain about the flavor of free ice cream. Everyone was welcome to purchase during the flash sale and if they had just purchased something then they were within the return period. Anything bought on the WMTM section is always final sale. If someone isn't comfortable with the price then DON'T BUY IT! Sheesh...

I think that it was great that LLL had the flash sale and hope that they have more. I was late to the party and I'm a size 6. They were pretty much sold out of all the colors and I passed. I'm not going to bash the company because I missed out.

ari @ whatarisaid said...

I can see both sides. Yes, I agree that a one day only flash sale is luck of the draw, and that it was stellar of them to that.. and yes, if you bought a scuba the day before at full price, you were kinda out of luck unless the tags were still on and you wanted to return it.

That said, I do see the side where some of us spend a lot of money at lulu, it would be nice if they would treat the loyal customers nicer - perhaps with a heads up about the sale. If I didn't know about Lulu Addict, I wouldn't have heard about the sale. That said, if I didn't know about Lulu Addict, I probably wouldn't spend as much money as I do.

Either way, I do hope they do more flash sales again.

Uh, hope that makes sense.

1:42 here…thanks for the thoughts! I think most of us feel the same way with the exception of a vocal minority.

I know, lulu as a whole has some crappy policies that we simply tend to put up with, so it shades how we feel about a particular issue that might arise. Personally, I view their overall policies as benefiting lulu over the customer (which is within their right - companies exist for the sole purpose of making money, and as long as they are making money, then keep on keeping on), but on an individual level with my local stores (2 of the 3 nearby, anyway) and with the online GEC, I have had nothing but awesome service.

I too agree with anon@1:42. If people don't like Lulu's policies (like not doing price adjustments) or they don't feel their loyalty is being validated, then they can choose to stop buying things at Lulu and let Lulu suffer the repercussions of their corporate strategy. I'm of the mind that I know what the policies of various stores are. I have the volition to choose whether I want to subject myself to those policies or not. No one is forcing me to purchase their products (thank God I still have my own company provided healthcare), so if I don't like the way I'm being treated by a retailer, I can take my money elsewhere.

I'm a fitness instructor in Canada, I spend a shit load of money on their products, but if I miss out on their one day sale I miss it, it's not the end of the world and I don't stamp my foot, pout and have a tantrum about it and OMG last boxing day sale I remember people doing exactly the same thing when they bought stuff and then later on in the week it went for a lower discount.

People look at the discount you did get, not what you didn't get. Glass half full as opposed to glass half empty and stop throwing the teddy about, it ain't big and it ain't clever.

totally agree with anon 1:42 in the end it really is our choice to spend the money we do buying from lululemon.
